As a machinist and versed in metallurgy I can tell you its all about the steel. Buck uses a great hard SS. A little tough to sharpen but it stays sharp.
Same here. And last weekend I "field dressed" a 520 lb hereford that had to be shot and dragged thru sand to get home. Used my BuckLite (426+ SS blade) hunting knife and it is still shaving sharp. Yes I tried it, good steel.
